Why was I able to receive unemployment benefits in 2020 but became ineligible in 2021? ?

I worked and lived in the state of Texas for 3 years but moved back to Mississippi in October of 2020 because the job shut down due to Covid-19

    That is because you have not paid the Mississippi unemployment tax for the last 18 months as required. Unemployment is a state issue and is not transferable from one state to another.
